Extremely slow round

We had a tee time for 11:20 on a Friday. Upon checking in staff said we don’t go by tee times as they aren’t required. We were told to start on red. It appeared nobody was starting on other two 9’s. There were five foursomes in front of us. We waited on every hole and players in front of us did not play ready golf. Round of 9 holes took 4 hours. We can play 18 holes in 4+ hours normally. Very disappointed overall and likely wo t au here again anytime soon.

What Tee Time?

Courses does not pay attention to tee times booked M-F. It operates on a first-come, first-served basis. Wasted 50 minutes to find out

Has potential to be elite

First time playing here. The course itself is really a great place, but this is the only golf course I’ve come across where they don’t do tee times…? It seems to be first come first serve which looked like absolute chaos. Groups of 4 stacked on top of each other as far as I could see. I recommend coming around 8 am if you want any chance to play under 4 hours

Management/Ownership is a joke

The course itself is decent for the price but the management/ownership is horrible and they know it and do not care. First off all, they don’t actually do tee times so don’t waste your money getting one on Golf Now. Secondly, they do not have a clue how to start groups off, or manage a busy golf course…nor do they care. They have three nine hole courses but insist on stacking everyone in line on one side sometimes resulting in more than a dozen groups lined up waiting and over an hour wait to tee off. Their only goal at Lambert Acres is taking your money and the quality of your experience is none of their concern. But, there’s enough local rednecks that don’t know how a respectable course is supposed to operate to keep them in business so they couldn’t care less. If you’re somewhat serious about the game…Go down the road to Egwani Farms. It is a much better experience.

Forgiving Course

Course was in great shape and is very forgiving. Played around 8:30 and it was packed. A lot of slower players held us up, but great course.

Overall nice course

We played the red course and orange course. The orange course was more interesting and scenic. The fairways and greens were in good shape overall. Will play it again.

Lambert Acres July 2021

This a beautiful course with very well maintained tee boxes, fairways and greens.

Unfortunately, when I arrived to check in the man at the counter looked up, saw me and continued opening the mail. I wanted a few moments and told him I was there to check in for my 9:00 tee time. His response was “huh”? I repeated, I’m here to check in for my 9:00 tee time. He told me they don’t accept tee times. I explained that I had booked online through GolfNow and had already paid a portion of the greens fees. He nodded and reluctantly checked my party in. I was there with my teenage son and husband, one of just two women who I saw at the course. I really felt as though this man did not want a woman playing at the course. My husband picked up on this as well and stepped in to take over the interaction. He was treated much better than I was. I will not return to this course nor will I recommend it to anyone else. This is really a shame because the course was beautifully maintained.

Good golf; great views

Not much flash but the fairways are good and the greens are receptive even in the summer heat. The 27-hole layout has been improved greatly over the years - and provides a solid option for your average player living or visiting Blount County.

No tee times

Made a tee time online and get to the course and are told they don’t take tee times!! How messed up is that. Aren’t even nice about it. Then told to see the starter, who we never did find. Free for all at the first tee. Wow.
